Tha Daily Spin , has been nominated for Best Music Blog at the Black Weblog Awards 2012! "We were notified of our nomination just this morning" states Lashaun Turner Owner/Editor in Chief . We are very pleased to be recognized in this fashion and were looking forward to winning"
The Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to Black bloggers (and those of the African diaspora) which were largely overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.
Since it's inception as a Music Showcase "Tha Daily Spin" has been very popular. The Magazine took off in a fresh direction this past June when it added music features at the core of its content offering. The magazine manages to keep in touch with it's Urban roots and audience while keeping the original format of the site intact. Ms Turner says “Music is now at the core of our Webzine, and I couldn't be happier or more honored to have been nominated for Best Music Blog this year”.
Semi-finalist voting begins in September. For more information visit www.1800RANT.com.
